Your closure of comments has coincided with a increase in left wing media bias that is far removed from public opinion.
Some examples: the coverage of the Conservative party and Boris in particular, your coverage of the BLM riots (or lack thereof), your coverage of fake news climate change articles, etc.
Thrusting one's self centred biased views down the throats of people and hoping for them to swallow so as to sway them to one's way of thinking is not going to work. People have brains to think, analyse and judge for themselves. Removing the COMMENTS section is robbing the people of their most basic fundamental right : FREEDOM of SPEECH. Isn't that the FUNDAMENTAL basis of DEMOCRACY ? Then, what is the DIFFERENCE from COMMUNISM & MARXISM ? Maybe, a new WORLD ORDER ?
Comments were scrapped after the BLM riots and ongoing US election
